    Default Hey, a new record watermelon 20 km from here

    A 139.600 kilograms watermelon won saturday's annual contest in Novellara,
    topping the previous world record from North Carolina in 2010 where 2
    Tennessee farmers won with a 132 kg watermelon.

    Time to get in the lowlands and find a sweet, juicy, BIG one!

    That seem impossible without cheating!

    I wonder if they didn't repeatedly inject it with sugar water to force the
    rind to stretch out to accommodate the added weight/pressure. Like force-
    feeding animals/rats?

    A 700 lb. watermelon just ain't natural!

    It's 139.6 kiligrams, which equals to circa 310 lbs.
    Anyway, I think they are growing a strain from the US, seeing the weight of
    the world records is is clear something happened there over the pond,
    expecially in the South like in Tennessee. BTW, in this watermelon area near
    here the vast majority of the production are nowadays "crimson" watermelons.

    ViLco,

    Oops. Sorry about the faulty weight conversion. I obviously error ed the
    value of kilograms. Thanks for the correction.

    It's certainly a champion!

    I'm not familiar with "crimson" or any other watermelon by name. All I
    know is either seeded or seedless.

    Best,

    Andy

    jBurns,

    Right.

    I goofed.

    Larger still using the stated 139.6 kg number.

    Best,

    Crimson is a strain from the US

    ViLco,

    It's probably just a lazy USA thing not to bother mentioning the
    name/variety. Maybe important between growers? I dunno.

    Anyone?

    Best,

    Andy
